    "We moved to this community last year and its our son's second year in this school. We have had nothing but the best experience so far. Mr.Bosco is a wonderful, large hearted Principal who knows almost all kids by their first names. He often drops into classes and watches the teachers interact with kids. He is always at playground during recess mingling with kids and talking to them about how their day went. He genuinely cares that each kid is happy and takes pleasure in their success. The teachers have been warm and most importantly accepting of all differences. This is definitely not a school for kids who are only academically oriented as the motto of the school is not only pushing education but bringing a much more well rounded encouraging environment for all. We would definitely recommend this school."

    "Both of my children have attended since kindergarten, we are now on our way out. Thank goodness. The teachers are nice, for the most part. Mr. Bosco is nice. But there is NO vision. NO progression. NO teacher accountability nor principal accountability . The teachers do as they please depending highly on parent involvement. The staff has been doing the same things for years clearly before my children started. It's sad and frustrating to watch. My children will be fine. But many many moments of the natural curiosity of world and learning have never been tapped into because of teacher/administration complacency . And , " well, this is how we do things... " mentality. Foothill and perhaps the district as a whole needs house cleaning. Money and high test scores do not equate great teaching. In an area with so much, foothill offers very little."

    "Did you notice that they grouped all the good kids in one class? We expected the class will be a mixed group but it is not. J. Bosco needs to do something about it, currently the classes are not balanced!"

    "Totally agree with the previous parent reviewers. This year's class placement is unfair and way too extreme. I'm so disappointed in the Principal and some of the teachers' judgment to place the students in this order. I hope they'll re-evaluate and review the criteria for future placement. Unfortunately, this year's arrangement cannot provide a well-balanced environment for the students to learn from each other."

    "I like many aspects of this school, such as student diversity and culture. However, I was very disappointed in the class assignments this year. Just as another reviewer had commented, the most advanced/mature students are all placed in one class. What is interesting is that class has the largest number of the teachers' kids. Is it really coincidental? We as parents do not get to pick our kids' classmates and teachers, yet it seems that teachers get to do exactly that."
